Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals introduces new PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus

Produce is a prescription-only home fluoride therapy toothpaste.

NEW YORK, New York--Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Colgate-Palmolive Company, has introduced Colgate PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus, the latest addition to the prescription-only PreviDent home fluorides portfolio.

Colgate PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus is inted for high-risk caries patients since dental caries remains the most common chronic disease globally. Colgate PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus contains 1.1% sodium fluoride (5,000 ppm), FluoriGard technology and tricalcium phosphate.

The new formula with FluoriGard technology has been shown in in vitro pH cycling studies to provide better remineralization after 10 and 20 days as compared to 3M Clinpro 5000 toothpaste.

FluoriGard technology is an optimized fluoride delivery system that produces a temporary shift in pH, a condition that favors remineralization and fluoride uptake in the oral cavity. In vitro studies show Colgate PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus delivers an 86% improvement in enamel fluoride uptake versus the prior Colgate PreviDent 5000 booster formula.

Similar to other products within the Colgate PreviDent 5000 portfolio, Colgate PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus is a unique liquid gel formula that enables faster fluoride dispersion vs. paste-form prescription toothpaste.

“High-level fluoride therapies are critical to patients at high risk for caries and new PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus liquid gel formula offers real advantages over traditional high fluoride toothpaste formulations,” said Dr. Barbara Shearer, BDS, MDS, PhD, director of scientific affairs, Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals.

“Faster fluoride dispersion combined with the enhanced in vitro remineralization (and fluoride uptake) makes PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus a great asset in achieving a healthy smile.”

Colgate PreviDent 5000 prescription strength home fluoride liquid gel formulas are also available to help treat symptoms of specific oral care conditions:

• Colgate PreviDent 5000 Sensitive
• Colgate PreviDent 5000 Dry Mouth
• Colgate PreviDent 5000 Enamel Protect

Colgate PreviDent 5000 Booster Plus is available in 3.4 fl.oz. (100-mL) bottles in spearmint and fruitastic flavors.
